Are you looking to be part of an awesome team? 

We’re often asked what sets NZMA apart – and that’s an easy one to answer. It is, quite simply, our people.

Our team comes from a wide range of educational and cultural backgrounds and offer a broad diversity of professional experience. But they all have one thing in common – they are all firm believers in the power of education to transform lives and they all have the drive to make a significant impact in the communities with which they work. 

If you want to work with a team making a real difference in the community then get in touch. You don’t need to have a background in teaching or education.
